reflowable text

In a word processor, text editor or online publishing system, the ability to automatically wrap words in a document to the next line as the user changes the window size and thereby relocates the right margin of the page. See word wrap.

word wrap

A word processing feature that moves words to the next line automatically as you type based on the current right margin setting. Some word processing programs allow word wrap to be turned off for writing source code. Of course, for customized spacing, you can always press Enter for a hard return just as in the old typewriter days. See hard return.
